Fiscal Sponsorship Projects

Divine Global Empowerment offers fiscal sponsorship and project management services to individuals and projects that do not have 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt status. Tax-exempt status is required by many foundations, corporations and government agencies in order to be eligible for funding. As a fiscal sponsor, Divine Global Empowerment acts as an umbrella organization for an individual or project and accepts and administers funds on its behalf. Divine Global Empowerment is legally responsible for the funds received on behalf of fiscally sponsored projects and insures that the funds are used for charitable purposes, and that donor reporting requirements are met in a timely fashion.
